your thoughts PLEASE

Just spoke to someone at Tire Rack about purchasing two tires. He told me that they will not sell tires to anyone that is going to install on bike or trike.
We have a trike and upgrading from 15" to 17" wheels. Was wanting to get availbley on Driveguard 245/45R17.
Have never bought anything on line. Can these just be bought online without talking to a live person at tire rack.
Thanks in advance.

I ordered my Yoko Avid Envigor online and never talked to anyone. It was shipped to me and was here in 3 days. Quick and easy. Just do it online.

I bought online from Tire Rack a couple years ago and had them ship to a local tire dealer/installer that was listed on their website as approved and offering a deal to install. I took the wheels off the trike and brought them in for mounting and balancing. No problem.

I just got mine delivered to my house. Just look for the boxes to check off to bypass what kind of car. I even got a 2 year warranty free with the purchase. Do it over the internet
